Super Green Smoothie

Smoothies offer the all important opportunity to incorporate greens in at breakfast time. For this reason I personally can eat them all year around. Not to mention they're also easy to prepare, transportable and highly modifiable according to individual preferences and needs.


This particular smoothie is high in fibre, relatively low in carbohydrates and thick enough to eat with a spoon. It's also versatile...


If you prefer a runnier smoothie, just add a touch more water. If you want to turn this into a post training smoothie, just add the extra 1/2 banana. If you'd prefer a vanilla vibe, exchange the chocolate pea protein for vanilla. If you have an IBD, you might benefit from a higher dose of psyllium husk. If you have SIBO, you might benefit from having kale over spinach.


If you're in need of professional advice on how to tailor this smoothie to suit your needs and goals, then I would absolutely love to help you. You can start by booking a Virtual, Complimentary 15 Minute Consultation.
